Friday Night Lights: Week 3 Wrap

Zero Week Wrap

Week 1 Wrap

Week 2 Wrap

2010 Texas commits

Connor Wood, Second Baptist quarterback: After winning last week, Second Baptist returned to their losing ways, falling to Victoria St. Joseph's, 40-30. Much like the other two losses, Wood struggled completing passes, ending the night with only 13 completions in 36 attempts for 192 yards and two interceptions. Wood did have an excellent day running the football, picking up 115 yards on 17 carries and scoring all four Second Baptist touchdowns on the ground. A couple of plays by Wood from the game can be found here.

Case McCoy, Graham quarterback: Graham stayed undefeated with another convincing victory, this time downing Iowa Park, 38-6 (several pictures of McCoy available at the link). The Iowa Park offense managed to control the clock much of the game, with the Steers only having two possessions in the second half, but Graham scored on six of their eight possessions, including touchdowns on both in the second half. As usual, McCoy led the way through the air, completing 17 of 27 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns. McCoy also gained 35 yards and scored a touchdown on the ground on four carries.

John Harris, Naaman Forest quarterback: Naaman Forest lost for the first time on the season in a shootout with Plano West, 49-35. Harris did his part running the football, breaking off another long run of 50 yards for a touchdown and finishing with 141 yards on 22 carries. Completing passes, however, continues to be a problem for Harris, who went 7 of 16 on the day for 118 yards, but did throw for his first touchdown pass on the season. On the season, Harris is now 22 of 42 passes, which actually looks decent compared to the poor completion percentage of Connor Wood this season.

Traylon Shead, Cayuga running back: A week after having his 100+ yards nullified due to the cancelled game against Dawson, Shead's quest to overtake Kenneth Hall took another major blow and one that may prove to be fatal after the Cayuga star left the game early in the first quarter and returned later in the half, but only gained 59 yards on 16 carries, including seven yards on nine second-half carries. Cayuga did win the game over Kerens, 32-26. Shead now has 8,108 yards for his career and needs to average 260 yards per game to break the record (assuming a 16-game season).

Chris Jones, Daingerfield wide receiver: After failing to record a catch last week in a victory against Celina, Jones returned to his big-play ways, breaking off a 64-yard touchdown catch and carrying the ball three times for 30 yards in Daingerfield's 41-0 win over Commerce.

Darius Terrell, DeSoto wide receiver/tight end: After suffering from the flu for most of the week, Terrell rebounded to catch seven passes for 113 yards and a touchdown, including a screen pass that the wide receiver/tight end turned into a gain of more than 50 yards. DeSoto destroyed Duncanville, 64-23.

Adrian White, DeSoto cornerback: White intercepted a pass in the game and returned it 11 yards for a touchdown.

Bryant Jackson, Sulphur Springs cornerback/wide receiver: Jackson helped Sulphur Springs remain undefeated on the season by beating Mesquite Poteet, 32-13. The future defensive back did his part, taking a punt 52 yards to paydirt and catching six passes for 43 yards. Jackson on his punt return:

Coach told me to catch it and run and that's what I tried to do. All the blockers picked up somebody and it made it easy. This was the first punt I'd scored on so  it was my best return of the season.

Adrian Phillips, Garland jack-of-all-trades: Phillips had his most productive game of the season, carrying once for six yards and catching eight passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns (including a 48-yard touchdown catch), helping Garland to a 34-30 victory over Abilene Cooper by scoring 21 unanswered points.

Carrington Byndom, Lufkin safety: Returning to action for the first time this week, Byndom broke up two passes and made five tackles in a Lufkin victory over Longview, 28-14. While Byndom apparently looked good in coverage ($), he did appear a little bit reluctant to mix it up in run support after returning from his broken thumb.

Tevin Jackson, Garland linebacker: LIke his current and future teammate, Jackson had his best week of the season, recording 12 tackles and three sacks.

Aaron Benson, Cedar Hill linebacker: No available stats for Benson as Cedar Hill beat Arlington Martin, 47-39.

Reggie Wilson, Haltom defensive end: Haltom lost to Keller, 42-25, but Wilson did record two sacks in the game.

2010 targets

Darius White, Fort Worth Dunbar wide receiver: White had an 82-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and caught three passes for 41 yards in a Dunbar victory over Roosevelt, 49-6.

2011 targets

Joe Bergon, North Mesquite running back: The big back bulled his way to 133 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown as North Mesquite lost to Irving MacArthur, 31-28.

Herschel Sims, Abilene running back: Sims helped Abilene win again this week by carrying the ball 17 times for 109 yards and two touchdowns. Abilene beat Tyler Lee, 34-29.

Aaron Green, San Antonio Madison running back: Green rushed for 195 yards on 20 carries and two touchdowns in an easy 42-9 victory over Johnson. The stud running back also added two catches for 22 yards.

Trey Metoyer, Whitehouse receiver: Another huge game for Metoyer in what is quickly becoming a common story. Whitehouse lost to Red Oak, 31-14, but it wasn't because of Metoyer, who caught 14 passes for 156 yards. Whitehouse, surprisingly, is now 0-4.

Note: Where possible, I tried to find the stats myself, but where they were not available otherwise, I used the stats ($) compiled by Rivals ($).
